The hour-long show debuted in October 3, 1955 and was syndicated in 1962-65, according to AP. However, in later years, she often participated in Mouseketeer reunions or television specials, as well as maintained close relationships with many of her fellow Mickey Mouse Club members. She was part of the nine-person cast for the show's entire initial four-year run.

The black-and-white series was syndicated in 1962-65.

Tracey was born in London on April 3, 1943.

The show was revamped in the early 1990s, launching several stellar careers - Britney Spears and Ryan Gosling both got their first taste of fame on the show. The work with the Mickey Mouse Club eventually landed Tracey a role in Disney's Westward Ho the Wagons! At the age of 12, in the year 1955, she became one of the first-ever Mouseketeers on Disney's Mickey Mouse Club, which first aired on ABC. Tracey strained her connection with Disney by posing for a men's publication 1976 with practically nothing except her tight mouse head sporting only an open trench jacket facing Disney Studios.

Tracey is survived by her son, Bradley, and two grandchildren, Gavin, 9, and Autumn, 12.
